Vanuatu Information

Vanuatu is considered The Happiest Place on Earth by the Happy Planet Index.

The Republic of Vanuatu is an archipelago of 80 tropical islands in the Pacific Ocean northeast of neighboring Australia. Home to the original bungee jumpers and the world’s largest shipwreck for scuba divers, Vanuatu has more to offer than its scenic coral reefs, canyons and rain forests.

Known for its prosperity, political stability, ecological efficiency, cultural diversity and closely-knit social communities, the peaceful island country of Vanuatu is one of Pacific’s untouched pearls waiting to be embraced.
